I'm bragging

I know, I know, I'm one of *those* mom's. But I'm so, so proud of my little Red. She had to write a poem for school about an emotional event in the book they were reading, Rolf and the Viking Bow. And she chose to write about the tree where a heart wrenching, unjust murder took place. (I am reprinting with the author's permission).

So I share with you her poem: The Tree.

The Tree

A tree of weeping, death, and sorrow
Yet lives to see a morrow.
Where Hiriandi died, and Frodi cried,
Of which Thurid warned and Einar replied
“Be quiet,” and went to bed.

Rolf shot, revenge to make,
Einar’s happiness to take.
A tree of enemies and foes,
A tree of weeping and woes.

Thanks, K! She is nine, and when she reads it, she has this very literary, poetic voice. It's so cute. :)

She is amazing. You were writing poetry early too, and it was impressive. She is really really amazing, though.
